One of the most common Coreopsis killers is winter thaw and freeze. Mulching helps mitigate this and can be helpful in areas where mid-winter thaws are common such as mid-Atlantic states. Best to use a loose mulch like pine-straw or hay rather than leaves which breakdown easily. Be sure to wait until several hard frosts before cutting back dead foliage to make sure plants are completely dormant.

Echinacea Yellow My Darling - Tip: Choose plants that are hardy, avoiding plants that are less hardy than your zone.If you live in a zone 4, but can get away with growing perennials that are only hardy to zone 5 – this is not the best time to plant. These perennials need a full growing season for the best chance to overwinter, particularly as a young plant. In fact, it is safest to plant perennials that are one zone hardier than yours (planting a zone 3 perennial if you live in zone 4).
